Quaker who is scratching his cloaca constantly

I have a 6 yr old quaker male who is almost constantly rubbing his cloaca on branches like he's horribly itching. What can I do? Is this a sign of a yeast infection?

Quaker rubbing on things

It sounds like the bird wishes to breed, but only a vet visit could confirm this. Many birds do this when they wish to breed and the other gender is not available.

I am NOT suggesting you add another bird to the cage. That is not the answer.
